Our xbox360 wont read ANY disc. the laser flashes and the disc spins around once. but still wont read. kinda makes a short grunting noise twice. whats the issue?


Is it with everygame? I had the same problem with my xbox. If I tapped on the xbox after I closed the tray you could hear it read the disc. After awhile I was annoyed and afraid I could ruin a disc so I went to gamestop and had them fix it.

When i put a game in my xbox 360 it says reading then open tray


I found a solution that works for me after a long period of time with this problem.

Get an air spray canister (just compressed air), open your Xbox's game tray, take the disc out, then spray the air along the tray, moving side to side inside the Xbox. You may want to spray into the vents, too, just to be sure.

This worked for me, and it was the only thing that worked for me. I had already tried hitting the console with the controller (gently), and doing the stuff Microsoft recommends etc.

If that doesn't work, you could try gently knocking the top of the Xbox with your conroller, when you put the disc in, as I've heard that works for some people.

Another thing that works for some people is taking the disc out, closing the tray, then when it goes to Open Tray, open the tray, put the disc back in and then closing the tray again.

My xbox keeps saying open tray I brought it to a guy twice and no fix everytime I put a game or movie in it it reads and says open tray


Reasons

1, the disc may be dirty
2. the mian reason for this your xbox drive cannot read the disc , because the power of the lens is gone(not completely) ,

solution:

1. keep your disc inside the drive and switch off the console, again swith on try this 2 to 3 time
2. keep the console in vertical position or little slanding position(180 dg) make sure it does not fall

3. its better to buy hatddisc and load the game inside it , so that u lens life increased

4. change the entire drive

Xbox 360 open tray message; not reading discs


If it won't play any games it might be the laser that reads the disk. I would suggest getting it checked out somewhere.

My Xbox 360 Halo 3 edition hardly reads any disc successfully!


This most likley a weak laser .
8 mw 633 nm laser diodes fail in stages
as they get weaker the cd ups voltage
to the laser diode till you get to full gain, affter that
it's time for a new laser .Good news
there cheap 30.00-40.00 and not too
hard to swap out yourself .
